Accompanying the news of Ellie Goulding getting her first #1 single with ‘Burn‘ and a #1 album this week, 65 weeks after it was first released (good marketing or did we all just come to our senses?), is a flashy new video. ‘Goodness Gracious‘ is one of the new tracks added to the re-issued ‘Halcyon‘ album, called ‘Halcyon Days‘. It was also co-written with Nate Ruess from Fun fame.
The video is very American in it’s styling, I guess the neon colours and palm trees give it away a bit! But with a director who has done videos for Katy Perry and Marina & The Diamonds in the past, it isn’t surprising that it has this kind of theme. It doesn’t have much of a story to the video, it’s just another video of young’uns partying with their friends in brightly coloured clothing. But maybe that’s just how we are supposed to enjoy the music? Either way, Ellie has had a great start to 2014 and I think this festival season will be hers for the taking!
What do you think of this video and track? Were you one of those that brought Ellie’s album to the #1 spot this week?
